Composition: 1908.

The work was composed in 1908 for the male choir Bel Canto and its conductor Vilhelm Poulsen. Together with Nielsen's melody for Paaskeblomst, en Draabe stærk (CNW 361), it was later re-used in a cantata arranged by Valdemar Rørdam for the inauguration of the 'radium station' (radiotherapy clinic) in Copenhagen on 4 March 1931.

Andante molto tranquillo (drømmende)
